Imagine a crystal ball that could anticipate the future: would you dare to gaze into its deep, unfathomable mystery? If you were so inclined, what do you think you would see or perhaps hope to discover as you observe yourself anticipating your unwritten future, or the shared destiny of your loved ones and those you hold dear, the unfolding intrigue and machinations of a society intent on pursuing the great schema of things? Is it the case that any of these conundrums affect our perception of the world, not only of what the future may hold, but also our memories, our reflections and interpretations of what has gone before? It’s all too easy to assume that what we imagine is an accurate reflection of reality. Many of our greatest deceptions evolve out of such faulty supposition.
